From the Bride:

A fun experience, but of course stressful at times. It’s so important to remember it’s about you two and nothing else matters. Surprisingly, I was extremely calm the day of, I wasn’t nervous. As soon as I saw my dad at the museum I lost it. Seeing his face and the tears in his eyes. Having all of our family and friends together for two nights is incomparable. They were so much love and I couldn’t have asked for more perfect night.

From the Groom

It was awesome, one of the most incredible days of my life. It was very bittersweet, as my father and sister were not a part of this day. I wish I could it all over again.

Favorite wedding detail:

We had Harvey Cummings playing the piano during the ceremony and cocktail hour. He sounded incredible and added a different element to the wedding.
